Chickpea Herbed Patties


My first attempt at making my own veggie patty! I rarely ever buy vegan burgers because I just can’t find one that isn’t crazy expensive, full of sodium, and that I like enough to spend $6 a box on! These are super hearty and filling so I recommend having them on a lettuce leaf or another type of green instead of bread.

Makes about 6 patties

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas (I pressure cook mine but canned is fine also, just don’t use as much salt)
  • 1 leek, finely chopped
  • 3 small carrots, shredded
  • 5 small white potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • paprika, red pepper, and sea salt to taste
  • 5-6 leaves of kale, chard, or any kind of lettuce you can wrap around the patty
Preheat your oven to 400°. Boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes until they’re just starting to get tender. While that’s cooking, start cooking the leeks in a pan with some olive oil over medium-low heat until they start to become translucent, but not browned. When your potatoes are done and have cooled a bit, shred them into a mixing bowl, and add all the remaining ingredients. Toss everything together and form the mixture into 1/2 inch thick patties. Cook them over medium heat in a non-stick skillet until they are browned on both sides. Finally, put the patties in the oven for about 10 minutes until they become crispier and more firm. Wrap some greens around them and enjoy!

    These were absolutely amazing. I mean really, really good. Just savory and salty enough, with a little crunch right when you bite in. I could eat them everyday.

    Thanks so much, Poorvegan!

    They sound and look amazing! I have always been a little hesitant about making them. However, after reading the recipe and seeing your picture, I am going to give it a shot.

    I finally made these patties and they were astounding! We did not have any leftovers. Furthermore, my non-vegan stepson loved it.

    They were very tasty and nutricious! Real comfort food…

    Amazingly delicious and bursting with flavor although our attempt didn’t produce the desired “patty” it was delectable nonetheless.
